Sacred Watch

No matter what, these men remain ever watchful at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Washington D.C.:
.
.

My dedication to this sacred duty
is total and whole-hearted.

In the responsibility bestowed on me
never will I falter.
And with dignity and perseverance
my standard will remain perfection.

Through the years of diligence and praise
and the discomfort of the elements,
I will walk my tour in humble reverence
to the best of my ability.

It is he who commands the respect I protect,
his bravery that made us so proud.

Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day,
alone in the thoughtful peace of night,
This soldier will in honored glory rest
under my eternal vigilance.

May God bless and keep these men ever safe in their vigil.
